Largo man hit, seriously injured, trying to cross street

PINELLAS PARK — A 43-year-old Largo man was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries Saturday night after he was hit by a car as he crossed 66th Street North, authorities said.

Leonard Sadler was taken to Bayfront Medical Center after the accident, which happened shortly after 10 p.m.

Sadler was trying to cross from the west side to the east side of 66th in the 12400 block when he was hit by a southbound 1996 Honda Accord driven by 21-year-old Margaret Long, of St. Petersburg, according to Pinellas Park police.

Sadler was crossing mid-block in a darkened stretch of roadway south of 126th Avenue North, police said.

The southbound lanes of 66th were closed for approximately three hours after the crash, but have been re-opened.

The Pinellas Park Police department's traffic homicide unit is investigating to see if any charges will be filed.
